A Critical Analysis of the Intentional Deviation in News Editing


News Editing is the clearest coding, which reflects the writer’s behavior of the editor who linguistically, socially, or culturally edits and deviates some of the source language aspects. It, furthermore, refers to the writer’s competence of using an influential linguistic style and preserving the SL norms and policies. At the same time, editing news presents a new horizon within a different political framework into TL. The problem of news editing of the same TV in Arabic and English editions lies in discrepancies in meanings; intentional deviation and politics. For instance, BBC, which broadcasts in Arabic, has a different editing from its English edition. This study ascribes such differences to the different socio-cultural and political strategies adopted by the writer. The primary objectives of the study are: 1-Finding out the political reasons behind the discrepancy and the intentional deviation in news editing. 2-Identifying the political attitude of the original editor and the political attitude of the editor. The data set in this study consisted of “TWO” edited news editing (1 from English into Arabic) and (1 from Arabic into English). These two news writings have been broadcasted on BBC English & Arabic editions. A critical-stylistic analysis has been conducted by applying House’s (2001) model of TQA.
